Fifa rejects Blatter, Platini appeals against bans

FIFA’s appeal committee on Wednesday rejected Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini’s appeals against their 90-day bans for financial wrongdoing.
The ban was issued on October 7 by FIFA’s ethics committee pending full investigations into a two million US.dollars payment Blatter approved for Platini in 2011 as backdated salary.
However, Platini will appeal again at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), his lawyers said in a statement shortly after FIFA’s rejection. – Reuters
